The Buccaneers and Falcons released their final injury report ahead of their matchup this upcoming Sunday, and Tampa Bay’s latest addition to the list doesn’t look so good.
Heading into this week’s game, cornerback Carlton Davis III has been listed as questionable with a hamstring injury. Nothing more on the situation is known at the moment.
Speaking to the media following Friday’s practice, head coach Bruce Arians talked about how important Davis is to the Buccaneers defense.
“Carlton is, I think, one of the top corners in the league and he does give you a lot of flexibility defensively as far as being able to follow a guy from inside to outside and both sides,” Arians said. “Some guys only do it from one side or on the outside – he will follow his guy around [and] he gives Todd [Bowles] a tremendous amount of flexibility.”
Tampa Bay is already hurting in the secondary with the loss of cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting. It’ll be interesting to see how the Bucs adjust if Davis is also out, even if it’s just for this upcoming game.
